    The Super Eagles of Nigeria sealed their spot at the FIFA World Cup 2018 with their last match played on October 7th, 2017, winning the Zambians with just one goal to nothing.

    Following the qualification, the NFF gets $10m (N3.6b) qualification bonus and $2.5m (N900m) for the Super Eagles to prepare for the tournament.

    Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), in French, while the English meaning (International Federation of Association Football) give out qualification bonuses to the Federation of countries playing in any of their tournaments.

    FIFA gets money from sales and sponsorship of TV rights. The federation receives money and in turn pays players and also uses the rest for preparation of the tournament and development of football in their countries.

    Gernot Rohr who is the Super Eagles boss used 37 players for the qualifying series to the 2018 FIFA World cup and each of the players will receive a share of the bonus. Should the Super Eagles qualify for the knock-out stage when the game starts the NFF gets more money like they did in 1994 FIFA World cup in the USA, 1998 FIFA World cup in France and also 2014 FIFA World cup in Brazil.

    The Super Eagles of Nigeria will get a share from about $700m which will be distributed among the participating countries of the 2018 FIFA World cup in Russia.
